i know that we have all had relationships where we loved someone, and we couldn't see ourselves without them but honestly, i have talked to some people that have said stuff like the only reason i am in this relationship is because i love him/her its not that i am happy anymore because i have been unhappy for awhile now...so i was thinking to myself this may be true, i mean you don't want to lose the person that you are with because you do love that person...so i was just wondering about all of you, have you ever stayed in a relationship with someone because you loved them even though you weren't happy in the relationship, you stayed just so you wouldn't lose them because you did love them....thanks for taking the time to read my discussion and i hope that you all have a great day!

Yes id stay with someone that I loved, if you love someone then its worth fighting for, but I wouldnt sit around and be unhappy no i would do my very best to make it work and let us be happy only then if I couldnt would I go but id do everything within my power to make that the last resort.

i agree with you, i think that you should try and make things work if you can and then if you can't as the last straw you have to get out of the relationship...thanks for replying to my discussion!

Yes i have stayed in a relationship because i loved a person. Even though he has made me unhappy in several ways i stayed on because i loved him. I dont know if i did the right thing at the time but however both of us are happy now!
